Mail Tribune 100, Jan. 10, 1922

The following news items were drawn from the archives of the Mail Tribune 100 years ago

Jan. 10, 1922


Carl Anderson, who was the victim of Nan White or Whiting to the tune of $680, when she left him en route to the altar while buying a pair of stockings in a Portland department store, has neither been seen or heard of by local friends, since the unexpected happened in his matrimonial venture. Anderson was supposed to have started for Medford when the romance ended.

Ray H. Toft, a close friend of Anderson’s and at whose house he stopped, thinks that Anderson is trying to locate the lady with his bank roll, and that he is looking for her in Seattle, where she checked her trunk from Vancouver, Wash. He also thinks that Anderson, if he ever locates Nan, will have her arrested for alleged use of the mails to defraud.

According to Toft, Anderson had $1,100 with him when he left Medford on his honeymoon (?).

It has also been learned that the woman came to this city from Stockton, Calif. and “tipped” the drayman who hauled her trunk to the depot $1.00 the evening before her departure with Anderson.


Concrete action on the part of the Jackson County Golf Club committee is expected, within the next ten days, to determine the feasibility of the organization and financing an up-to-date gold club in the county. Soliciting committees have started canvassing the entire county for the charter membership and have to know in the near future if the undertaking will be practical or not.

Under the plans that the committee is working on all money subscribed is made payable to trustee banks in Jackson County to be held by the banks until the full amount necessary for the completion of the undertaking free from all debts, have been actually paid into the banks in cash.

The provision is made in the contracts that unless the full amount of money necessary for the project is subscribed by April 1st that the trustee banks are to return all contracts to the original signers and the undertaking will then be abandoned for this year.
